Because Artemis found her before he was able to find anyone else? ...That's a really absurd question.

I think the weirdest part is that she has an entirely different outfit. Until she meets the other Senshi, then she has an outfit more similar to them. Like...what? Why?

OP probably meant less so why did this happen in the story (the answer being as you said, Artemis found Venus first), and more, why wouldn't Sailor Moon be written to have Sailor Moon awaken first as that makes sense given she's the main character.

Random guessing. None of this is canon, just me spitballing concepts.

1. Because Sailor Venus' capacity as a body double for Sailor Moon (as seen in that one episode with Kaolinite) worked so well it fooled the cats, and Artemis legitimately thought she was the moon princess.

2. Because Artemis is a dork, and Luna was slow.

3. Artemis has some unknown special connection ( :love: ?!) with Sailor Venus from the Silver Millennium era.

4. Minako is an early bloomer on magical energy, so the others weren't ready to awaken quite yet.

5. They found and considered Usagi first offscreen, but decided she couldn't possibly be the right one, and looked elsewhere first before resorting to Usagi after a trial run of Sailor Venus.

6. Because Minako is secretly the real moon princess and nobody figured it out by the end of Sailor Stars.

7. Because Minako is not actually the reincarnation of Sailor Venus, but rather an imposter mole / undercover sleeper agent from the Dark Kingdom waiting for the perfect moment.

8. Because Minako is Sailor Cosmos Chibi Chibi.

As for why her costume is different...

1. Maybe Minako's powers awakened imperfectly, and the Sailor V form is a weird janky didn't-quite-take kind of form?

2. Minako has her own rarely-seen 'Super' form in the first place, which allows her to melt youmas by kicking them in the face like we saw in London, but this 'super' V form is deactivated for some reason by the time she joins the team. (The mask is a special upgrade much like Usagi's wings are a special upgrade.)

3. Artemis goofed up the settings on Minako's transformation pen and only fixed it later.

4. Artemis damaged Minako's transformation pen and only fixed it later.

5. Because Taku stole Minako's transformation pen from Artemis and messed with the settings to design a sexier outfit.

6. Because Minako is a secret Dark Kingdom agent, using the transformation pen has different results, which she was able to hide later before Artemis was any the wiser.

7. Because everyone originally would've had a Sailor V type form, but the transformation pens went through some kind of automatic upgrade when Usagi was first awakened, which sent them all to the next form level before they ever saw those V-type forms.

8. Because Minako had a powerful subconscious desire to look awesome.

9. Minako's transformation pen was malfunctioning because it got run over by a Porsche having a race with Masato Sanjoin's Ferrari.

Artemis found her first because :
1 he was the one who had his memory about Silver Millenium restored and didn't have a plaster like Luna which somehow would have deactivated his magical abilities;
2 he is Sailor Venus's guardian so they had some kind of a connection/bond between them, making this easier for Artemis to find her.

The reason Minako was Awakened first is very simple: dumb luck. Simply put, Boss and Artemis just happened to build their headquarters right under the arcade Minako went to play at.

And an indirect confirmation of this is that Usagi was found right after she started going at the Crown.

there's her being the first created senshi Naoko made and there's the whole thing about her being leader within the inners among mars mercury and jupiter second to moon or rather the princess herself then there's situations where she pretends to be the princess till the real one is revealed and I guess another way to put it is Artemis found Minako first before Luna found Usagi and even then making Usagi sailor moon was an accident because Luna sensed Usagi was important she didn't realize Usagi was the princess instead of being one of the guardians, the ability to become sailor moon must have been something Queen Serenity foresaw to stop the Dark Kingdom should they awake again

In story reason that I've made up: Since Venus was the leader, she was set to wake up first and try to handle the Dark Kingdom from gaining to much power but it was to much for her handle and thus plan B happened.

Well there is two explanation s . Technically sailor venus was the firs sailor guardian created by Naoko . The otheres weren't created until they wanted to make an anime. So the manga sailor moon was born.

In-story it just sounds like Artemis and Luna were operating at similar times, and Artemis just happened to find Minako first? In the context of real life, Sailor V's story was developed first and Sailor Moon wasn't the initial idea that Naoko had.
